Acquisitions Institute

I returned from the Acquisitions Institute at the Timberline Lodge so energized and full of ideas around how we in collections can advocate for authors rights. Stay tuned for a forthcoming blog post on how well I manage to turn that idea into a process at the old library.
Above is my slightly silly Ghostbusters-themed presentation about trialing resources. Enjoy!

ER&L Recap

ER&L is one of my favorite conferences each year. Content is always so solid, Austin is an awesome city (and a short drive), and I get to spend time with my people, all of us in libraries who precariously straddle the many processes associated with electronic collections.

I’ve uploaded my presentation to SlideShare and embedded it here. Unfortunately, my copresenter was unable to make it, but otherwise, it was a very successful presentation. I had so many great questions from the inbox, and I loved reading through the Twitter response when I had finished up.
